The girls at Jingle Belles are back with a challenge for the new year – asking us to make a card featuring wrapping paper or gift tags. Well hey, this one is perfect for me this year! Short back story: I am notoriously late with present wrapping, most often staying up late into the night at the last minute to get things done in time, and doing a half ass job of it. Not this year! I had a plan – turned it into a crafty project, and was done with days to spare! Everything was wrapped in kraft paper, then I added beautiful ribbon, die cut greenery, tags, stamped with the Stampers Anonymous “Festive Overlay” stamp set, and pretty metal embellishments from Idea-ology. (Holiday Hacks abound!). Once the festivities were over, all the bits and pieces were saved in a box, hopefully to be repurposed next year. So that being said, this was probably the fastest card I have ever put together – I just recreated on of my presents; slapped it on a card and called it a day!
